Joshua Redman and I had gotten to know each other when SF Jazz presented a double bill of my trio Plays Monk and Josh’s trio featuring Joe Lovano. Later I invited Josh to sit in with my quintet, and he suggested that we make a record together. Ron Miles and I are both from Denver and I had always been crazy about his playing so I invited him (this was before we recorded Go Home). Of course anything can happen when the rhythm section is Good For Cows. We rehearsed for a day and then recorded at the legendary (and lamented) Bay Records in Berkeley, California. The session had a loose, swinging feel, and we tried a wide range of tunes, from the avant-swing of “Evolution” to the exuberant funereal march of “Possible,” and I even made an arrangement of Bob Dylan’s version of “Satisfied Mind.”
